    My Thoughts on Teaching:
    A teacher must possess the following attributes: commitment, organization, and love. Teaching is not a 40 hour per week job. Teaching is more of a lifestyle than a profession.   A committed teacher spends his/her entire day honing his/her craft, developing his/her teaching skills, and viewing all life experiences, from the banal to the sublime, as viable content for instruction.  In addition, if a teacher fails to plan, he/she plans to fail.  Good teaching is good planning.  Organizing, scaffolding, and differentiating instruction allow a teacher to equitably engage and include the diversity of students that make up the urban and suburban classroom.  Finally, the outstanding teacher has a love for learning, a love for teaching, and a love for the student-teacher relationship.
